This cake is not a typical "Coffee Cake" with cinnamon. It is a chocolate chip cake with real coffee. My family gobbles these squares up.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cream the margarine or butter with the sugar.
  3. Add the egg and mix.
  4. Then blend in the rest of the ingredients except the chips.
  5. Spread into a greased 9x13" baking pan.
  6. Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top.
  7. Bake for 30-35 minutes.
  8. Cool and then cut into squares.

Really nice recipe. Easy and quick, cake texture with a nice mellow coffee flavor. The crust crisped up nicely and the choc chips didn't sink at all, just melted over the top. Yes its very sweet but I don't have a problem with that. Great with a coffee or warmed as a desert with some ice cream on the side. Many thanks !

This is a nice deviation from the normal coffee cake I usually make. I really like this a lot!

I wanted to use Starbucks Coffee Liqueur instead of coffee so I did and it had a great flavor but it was pretty strong. I think next time I will use 1/4 cup coffee and 1/4 cup of the liqueur. I will be making these again though, especially for company they are a great after dinner snack.
